It looks like the Laredo city council district VII race just got a little bit more interesting. Yolanda Salinas, whose divorce from mayor Raul Salinas should be finalized by October, has announced that she is seeking the seat currently being held by Jorge Vera.
Ms. Salinas is the third candidate to announce for the city elections in November. Previously, UISD board president Pat Campos announced she will seek the district V seat being vacated by Johnny Rendon. Shortly thereafter, Roque Vela Jr. also announced for the same seat.
No word yet if the mayor plans to resign.
